Welcome to the USW’s new national bilingual website. Thank you for visiting!

The new website is based on more than a year and a half of work, including interviews with Steelworker members and staff about what they need in a new website and what tools they want to be able to find.

Thank you to our website provider Point Blank for its expertise and commitment to building a great website that strengthens the union’s work now and for the future.

Here’s what’s new:

  • Attractive, intuitive new lay-out and navigation.
  • New membership support area on the home page to help members find what they need!
  • Member education can now be found in the main menu – after all, it’s one of the most popular areas on the site. 
  • Bold photos of USW members on all of the main pages and refreshed, sharp branding that will be carried through other USW materials. 
  • It’s mobile responsive on any device, including smartphones, iPads, laptops, you name it – it will work!
  • Better search engine optimization to help members and potential members find the website.  
  • A new ‘Get involved’ section, with an area where members can choose their area of interest and tap into issues Steelworkers are engaged in. 
  • Revamped and more attractive district pages.
  • High standards of accessibility to meet and exceed current requirements, to ensure Steelworkers and allies with disabilities can comfortably navigate the website and find what they need.
